The Archaeology of Dunwich: A Camping Trip, Dunwich, Suffolk - 1st-3rd August 2015

It's the first leg of a two-part camping trip, this part being at Cliff House in Dunwich. Apart from the wasps and a near-invasion of flying ants, it's another good visit which features den building in the woods, time on the beach and an archaeological dig in Dunwich, presented by Time Team's TV archaeologist Carenza Lewis.
